After NBC decided not to continue airing the Golden Globes post its 2023 telecast, CBS has now picked up the ceremony, which its 83rd edition will air on the network on January 7 as of 5 pm PT/8 pm ET.
This news comes in the wake of a massive restructuring for the Golden Globes after the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced earlier this year that it would disband, and all assets were then sold to Dick Clark Productions and Eldridge Industries following the announcement. To renew interest in the Golden Globes, two new categories have been unveiled for next year’s ceremony: Best Stand-Up Comedian on Television and Best Cinematic/Box Office Achievement.
In a statement, CBS president and CEO George Cheeks said the following: “Live entertainment and sports have, and will always be, a hallmark of CBS, and the Globes adds an exciting new dimension to our first quarter schedule this year. The January timing also provides the added benefit of yet another signature platform to promote the return of CBS’ new primetime schedule in February.”
On the other hand, Jay Penske, the CEO, chairman, founder of Penske Media, and owner of DCP added the following: “We’re so proud to bring the Golden Globes to CBS to celebrate 81 years of award show history. CBS has demonstrated an impressive 30-year commitment to the Grammys and been instrumental to their long-term success. In CBS we found an ideal partner who understands the value of live entertainment programming and whose multiplatform distribution model is reflective of how global audiences choose to consume content today.”
